How to incorporate Co-Authors Plus template tags into Hueman (5 posts)

    I am new to working with WordPress themes and my PHP is rusty.

    I searched and found how to remove the author name from single.php and how to add the author name to content.php and content-featured.php (which I did).

    In spite of the excellent documentation I'm feeling lost when I attempt adding the Co-Authors Plus template tags to Hueman.

    Hello!

    I am here to help you. I would like to ask, are you getting some error messages when implementing the modifications, or you need help doing them?

    Is your site hosted on WordPress.com, or you host it at a web hosting company?

    Thank you!

    Cheers,
    Balint

    Beside that, just for a reference, I would like to recommend you this article if you have many authors working together on your site.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Balint. I need help modifying the theme. I'm not sure where to make the changes.

    The site is hosted by my university. It is a literary journal and our needs are fairly simple. We don't need multiple bylines, we only need to change the byline from the person creating the article to the person who wrote it. I'd like to avoid modifying the theme and creating user accounts just to publish articles.

    The article you linked to eventually led me to the Bylines plugin. It hasn't been updated in about a year (which concerns me), but it works without modifying the theme.

    I think the Bylines plugin is the way for us to go.

    In that case I agree that the Bylines plugin is the best option.

    I was thinking about your issue, and if you don't need the author names to be linked inside WordPress (that would mean that the visitor could click on the name and would see all related posts), then it is fairly easy to add a custom field to the posts where you could fill in the name(s) right in the post editing panel, and with just a little bit of coding in the theme, it would show the name(s) you have typed in. I am not trying to convince you that you don't need the Bylines plugin or that it is not a good solution, it is just an additional option for you. Of course, I can provide you all the code necessary if you would like it this way.

    By the way, I would like to mention, just to be sure, if you did some modifications to your theme's files, you have to create a child theme in order to preserve the modifications you have made, because every change in the theme files gets deleted when WordPress makes an update (these days it happens automatically).

    If you have any questions, just feel free to ask, and I am really happy to assist you.

    Cheers,
    Balint
